Whether Indian or not I feel sad for all those who lost their life. may their sole rest in peace.
Russians majority deaths ! Let us pray some good technology available to avert these hurricane winds disturbing visibility of pilots!
What was the need to try to attempt to land in bad weather.
I don't know but if it could have been diverted somewhere else due to such bad weather and no visibility!
If the windspeed is above 40 kmph at landing levels planes shouldn't land.
RIP .. Investigate reason for crash
Tragic , RIP
Seems to be, the aircraft was subjected to heavy crosswinds..which made it to miss its path towards the runway.
Sad for the loss of life of the loved one.... I live in Rostov the weather is horrendous snowing high winds and poor visibility. The flight was in air for hours before trying to land. Should have gone to nearby airport as other airline do occasionally
it's so sad
terrorist attack cannot be ruled out
Indians are everywhere
